Author Peter Wohlleben is teaming up with Kwiakah First Nation for a segment a documentary based on his best-selling book, The Hidden Life of Trees. The Nation is concerned about the impacts of industrial-scale logging in the Phillips Arm watershed.
It’s not every day you can say celebrated environmentalist David Suzuki and international best-selling author Peter Wohlleben are coming to pay you a visit. But Chief Steven Dick of Kwiakah First Nation, and Frank Voelker, the Nation’s band manager, were able to do just that when a documentary film crew—whose team included Suzuki and Wohlleben—visited Kwiakah territory in fall 2018.
The film being made by Constantin Film aims to convey the impact of Wohlleben’s immensely popular book, The Hidden Life of Trees: What they Feel, How they Communicate – Discoveries from a Secret World.
